Re: Problem using cygwin autoconf

Hi Brad,

I have forwared this message to the main cygwin mailing list. Since I have no problems using autoconf and I'm not the autoconf maintainer, I cannot help you much here. One note, there was no update of autoconf since several months and I cannot see why a package that is stable like autoconf and causes few bug reports should be a problem.

Maybe there is a problem with your cygwin perl installation?

Do you have any suggestions as to how I should proceed to resolve this problem ?
